Court rules ‘Buggery Law’ unconstitutional

Jason Jones has won the favour of the court in his quest to repeal sections 13 and 16 of the Sexual Offenses Act.

In filing his case in March last year, Jones argued that the so-called ‘buggery law’ violates his right to privacy, liberty and freedom of expression.

According to TV6, Justice Devindra Rampersad today ruled that it is unconstitutional to impede on the rights of homosexual men and anal sex.

However, a final ruling will be handed down in three months to preserve the need for consent.

The matter has been a contentious one, with public gatherings organized by both supporters and opponents over the past two weeks.
